Why isn't atheism considered another form of faith?
If I understand the concept of atheism correctly, atheists do not believe god(s) exist(s) or in the afterlife (i.e. heaven, hell, etc.).
If absolutely no one knows with absolute certainty what’s on the other side of death, then wouldn’t atheism be considered another form of faith as it’s based on an hypothesis that can only be confirmed by seeing the other side of death?
